(Worthy News) – By Tuesday protests in Iran had tallied more than 100 deaths as calls came from Amnesty International and the UN for the Islamic Republic to stop its crackdown.

Amnesty reported that Iranian security forces had received a “green light” to begin firing into crowds, citing video footage of snipers targeting protestors from rooftops, and estimating that between 106 and 200 people had been killed by security forces.

Protests began Friday when the regime announced that fuel prices would be hiked 50% for the first 16 gallons purchased per month and 200% for every gallon after that, causing drivers to stop midcourse on their way home and block traffic.

Iran accused the US of infiltration along the lines of a CIA-engineered color revolution, claiming it had apprehended protestors who confessed to having “received money” to stir up public sentiment against the regime.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted US support in the wake of the protests, to the chagrin of Iranian leadership.
